One step closer?

We had a very promising meeting today with a prospective renter. She's a professor at Penn's Wharton biz school and needs a place for her family to stay while they renovate their Arlington home. Seems very responsible; she showed up exactly when she said she was going to; we had a nice conversation with her. Quite possibly the perfect tenant. The catch? (And you just knew there was one, didn't you?) They only need the house for three months, October - December. Right after Christmas they are moving back into their house, no matter what. ::: sigh :::

I don't want to jinx this, since it's not finalized yet. But if this situation comes to fruition it raises a whole slew of new questions. Should we go for it? (Answer: hells yeah, accept what the universe provides!) Where would we go for an abbreviated 3-month trip? (Answer: probably India.) Would we come back in January, or try to rent it out to someone else from remote? (Dunno the answer to that one yet.)

The very real possibility of moving out in three weeks looms large on the horizon. The good news is that we'll probably have to move even less stuff out than we'd originally planned, since our prospective tenant is OK with our storing stuff in the basement. This is one of the silver linings to having a 3-month rental term. But still, all of a sudden it seems like there's a ton to do in a short period of time! We should know within the next week whether or not it will all come together for October 1, and in the meantime we're trying to mentally prepare ourselves for some big changes. Fasten your seatbelts, friends and neighbors, I think we're about to go for a wild ride!

PS. Oh, and meanwhile I've been posting some of our Burning Man pictures. Still working on backdating some blog entries to fill in the gaps and answer the inevitable "What the...?" questions, but anyone dying for a sneak peek can take a look.
